Letters to the Editor do not, in general, make a town suck. But what sucks is that this is the typical "wingnut" mentality, given plenty of space in the local newspaper. That can lead others to conclude that a town has more than its fair share of crazies. Is it fair? No, but, you get my point.
How much is wrong with what this poor, confused man has to say? Well, if you were to point out that a decade of tax cuts hasn't produced the jobs this country needs and that the United States is not headed for a socialist meltdown, I suppose you'd be beating a dead horse.
Every small town has wingnuts; let everyone read their crazy letters to the editor. Don't censor these folks. Let them have their moment in the sun.
